The Tor project and browser was created as a way to maintain a person's digital privacy while browsing the web. Originally started in the 1990's and continually worked on over the years, Tor, or The Onion Routing works as a decentralized network to bounce your routing signal around multiple points. At each point it becomes encrypted and then bounced to the next, effectively masking your internet use.
As the years have passed the volunteers have increased from the first Twelve to Thousands around the world that work to help protect you. With the newest versions being based off of Mozilla Firefox, and therefore very user friendly.
While it is available for any computer operating system, this week is has launched via the Android app store. It was previously built in to Orbot but is now available as a stand alone browsing application.
For the first time allowing you completely private internet access all over the world.
